Word of the Day Challenge #111-Untitled Poem

Tears
seeping
below the surface
grin
stylized upon my lips
eyes
darting
gazing dark khol enlarged
beauty
bought
sold
no thought given
no acknowledgement of wants
only
what will gain
what will follow
from bridal truth.
Bound
upon altar of matrimony
girl…..
to
woman of manor
terror
no help
all failed
to see beneath debonair couture
loathing
man no longer
monster made.
In garden bloom
black and red
roses of grandeur
forever fertilized
by manor born man
beast of husband
widowed so young
no one knows
the body lies
beneath tapping feet.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom

    1. Thank you Rory! And a wonderful day to you as well. I am in countdown mode……21 hours until holidays for two weeks-start at noon on Friday. And 3 days until my birthday! I am a big kid when it comes to both of these things. 🙂
